Talks for forming cabinet start
There is Such a People invite all parliamentary represented political parties except GERBEuropost , Sofia
There is Such a People (TISP) will send today invitations for talks to all parties represented in the parliament, except GERB. This was announced to journalists in the National Assembly by Filip Stanev, deputy chairman of the parliamentary group, and Stanislav Balabanov from TISP.
Democratic Bulgaria party, Movement for Rights and Freedoms (MRF), Bulgarian Socialist Party (BSP) and Stand Up.BG! We are coming! will receive invitations.
TISP hopes that the invitations will be accepted and that practical talks will be held in the coming days so that there can be a stable government and parliament from now on. The meetings will most likely be held in the parliament building.
We must invite everyone except GERB for opinion, we comply both with public opinion and with democracy, this is its meaning - to have constructive talks, to hear their ideas, to present ours, and to discuss them, Balabanov explained. He hopes the final result to be positive. The MP stressed that it is important for the meetings to be public, not to be behind the scenes with the idea of negotiating posts.
The pure mathematics of the configuration of the 'protest' parties shows that the number of MPs is insufficient to form a 121 person majority, said Filip Stanev, when asked how he would explain the invitations to MRF and BSP, after the party's initial statement not to seek support from the so-called 'status quo' parties. In his words, in the name of the desire of the citizens for stability, it is necessary to hold consultations, because otherwise such a cabinet cannot be formed.
All invited parties have already stated that they would take part in the talks.
Meanwhile, the president's press office announced that tomorrow President Rumen Radev would hold consultations with representatives of parliamentary groups in the 46th National Assembly, before handing over a mandate to form a government to the nominee for prime minister from the party which has the largest representation.
